Eye Exercises To Improve Vision Naturally

Our eyes function because of the blood circulation, if the blood circulation is reduced then our vision will be at stake too. Just like we exercise other muscles of our body, eyes muscles need to be exercised too. Lets not forget eyes have muscles too, that needs exercise and fresh blood and oxygen for it to function effectively. So in this post I am going to reveal my favourite 6 eye exercises to improve vision naturally.

With increasing technology our eyes too have to meet the demands of being exposed to artificial lights all day (computer). People that are exposed to visual displays most commonly experience visual discomfort such as itching, redness, double vision, tired eyes, dry eyes, blurred vision. Most of us face eye fatigue due to exposure to computer, reading and all skills that involve visual focus. Eye fatigue symptoms involve pain around the eyes, headache and blurred vision. A  study performed by journal of physical therapy science (June 28, 2016)  revealed that “yogic eye exercise can relieve eye fatigue levels” on people.

So the good news is it is possible to improve vision with the power of yoga, you can cure eyes fatigue and all the eyes ailments that you thought would never cure such as

  • Double vision
  • Glaucoma
  • Cataract
  • Colour vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye fatigue

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this post. Since I’ve hit my 40’s I’ve noticed a real deterioration in my vision and have had to get glasses. Knowing that there’s exercises I can do to lesson the effects of blurred vision and to improve my eye health in general is awesome and I’ll definitely be bookmarking this page so that I can do my ‘daily eye exercise’. Thanks again, Cheers, Karen http://kdforsman.com

  2. Great post Raman.
    Eye health is something that is not discussed enough but is very important in life.
    We have an increase in Macular Degeneration in our communities and with the added high use of blue light sources such as computer screens, the problem is just going to get worse.
    Your recommendations are brilliant and perfect to incorporate into daily life.
    I’ve been also using Bilberry extract which can also protect eye health. Have you heard about it?

    1. Hello Vin,
      I agree with you on that, we are so busy in our life that whenever health conscious people like me get time we focus on exercising our body muscles but we forget about our eyes muscles. Our eyes are exposed to so much stress, and the ability to focus more on reading tiny letters. I wish the problem gets better and we all take care of our eyes, that way we will have healthy eyes and will not have to through optician visits as much. Yes I have heard of Bilberry extract, the fruit used for making medicine to improve eyesight but after reading your comment I was curious to do some research on it. The good part is it is made 100% naturally but there is no proven research that claims that it has no side effects, some critics say it has side effect while others say there is no proof yet. Thank you for sharing your experience and visiting this website.

      Best Regards

  6. Excellent article – I’m a software engineer where my job is always to look at a monitor. I have always felt an eye irritation while sitting at my desk and watching the computer. Your eye excercises have given me a good visualisation to overcome my irritation and also have given me a lesson about eyes. Defintely dishtri eye drops is a saver which I will buy it for my eyes, How many drops do I need to take per day and at what time? also does it give a irritation to the eyes once applied? Thanks Mana

    1. Thank you Manasir,
      I understand that it is challenging for eyes to sit in front of the computer whole and that is what my job is as well sitting in front of the computer. I have encountered the same problem, but the exercises definitely help. As for the Drishti eye drops yes because it contains onion water and lemon, it does stink just for few seconds but worth it. You have to apply one drop on each eye.
      Thanks
      Raman

  7. These are some very useful tips on how to improve eye vision, especially for someone like me who works on my computer almost daily.

    I tried out the eyeball movements as well as energizing the eyes with palm rubbing. I enjoyed rubbing my palms together and creating that positive warm energy for my eyes.

    It’s amazing to know that doing these simple tasks does improve and maintain my vision.

    I appreciate the time you took to provide this valuable resource – it’s very helpful and worth bookmarking.
